My opinion is...itís a Kawasaki Vulcan 2000. Iím not certain of the year model, but Iím almost 100% convinced it is a KAW VN 2000.
I agree Judah
2005 Kawasaki 2000 limited with a broke back right turn signal
Good eye Hogan. I didnít notice the damaged rear right turn signal.😎👍
Good eye. Looked up the Vulcan 2000 and that's what it is.
Funny, I've never heard to the 2000cc Vulcans. They came out 2 years before the m109r but seems to have faded away while the 9 is still here. The engine stats of the vulcan look like the 9 overshadows it even with 200cc less displacement and the vulcan is heavy as well.
Nice styling though.
I really like the Headlight Cowl/Assembly on the Vulcan 2000. Even at 2000cc, I feel the Vulcan canít compare to the 9...hands down.
As an aside LoBlo, I see youíre located in Dallas. Perhaps we can meet up somewhere sometime soon (while still practicing Social Distancing), and do a bit of riding around the area. Iím fairly new to Arlington, and perhaps you could show me some of the interesting bike spots in the DFW community.
The Vulcan wasn't even up to the honda VTX1800 standards in my opinion. It was a very low rpm engine with not top end to speak of. But it was nice to say that you had 2000cc. Even today most of the big V-Twins by other manufacturers fall on their face after about 5k rpm. That is their failing.
If you look back it's easy to find bikes that seem like they had all the displacement one could want on a bike (still retaining a motorcycle engine, BOSS HOSS not included) but only Suzuki actually figured out the secrets that actually made power and actually looks like something you don't have to be close to retirement to afford or be caught riding as a young fella... Not offense to the esteemed patrons of this here fine establishment.
